  1. I know! It looks so good. :) I've loved sharing it with my students all day today. Nothing better than proving to them, once again, that almost every fabulous movie actually came from a great book!

  4. I really, really, really, (and many times over) hope it doesn't suck.

    Not a fan of whoever it is they picked for Gale and Peeta.

  7. I'm with the full on criers. This looks like it's going to be spectacular.

    I don't understand all the people who are whining about the casting. People always whine about the casting until they see the movie and then they get over it. Personally, I think the casting is perfect. No, it's not who I saw "in my head." But how can it be?

  8. I've watched this 3x in the past 24 hours. I'd watch it more but the phones keep ringing at work. :D I'm very excited for this movie!

  9. Seriously, I am just SO happy with it. Gale, especially, is very similar to how I pictured him.

  10. This movie looks awesome. I am excited to see it.

    It even inspired me to create a list of upcoming YA Fantasy book based movies on my blog!

    The Hunger Games made my list!

  12. Becky, oh, I hadn't thought of that! Good for you. I bet that's been a blast.

    Sandy, I really think she is as well. Can't wait to see her in action.

    Mari, gives you chills, doesn't it?

    Laura, me, too. Me, too.

    Alexa, lol!

    Camie, does it? That's awesome, I love that! I really think it looks spectacular.

    librarian, lol. I hear ya. It's going to be very emotional.

    Diana, exactly. I just put aside what my mental images from the book and give the film its own chance to wow me. And frankly I'm already wowed. So exciting!

    Alicia, hehe. No shame. I'm about to watch it again right now. :)

    Janssen, I love hearing that. And I'm glad. Can't wait to see the full length film.

    R.J., it really does. I'll have to check out your list for sure. Sounds great.

    Matt, LOL. Haymitch, right? ;)

  13. I thought I was just hormonal and pregnant, cause I shed full on tears too, but I guess that's the norm! I was not expecting that flood of emotion!

  14. Aww dammit it looks really good!

  15. Liza, I completely understand. That brief shot of Rue killed me.

    Holly, right?!

  16. I was seriously on the fence with going to the theater to see this (I loathe the theater) but man, now I don't know how I can avoid it. Still bummed on the Lenny Kravitz casting but I'll have to learn to deal.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an
